There are conditions to miracles and I suppose it would depend upon what kind of miracle you need and if it is in the realm of what man can do. In the movie Faith like Potatoes, Angus Buchan described the two conditions. The first condition for a miracle is difficulty. This is what I would call in the realm of what our modern doctors are capable of. They have been given the ability by God to provide this type of miracle and many people see it as a miracle. For example someone says this was my illness and it is a miracle that the doctors were able to find it and heal me. The second condition for a miracle is impossibility. There are many sicknesses that go so far beyond what man can do and under this condition only God can perform it. God is the only one because He is the God of Impossibility. For instance a person has terminal cancer and the doctors have done all they can and have given the person only months or weeks to live. It is totally impossible for healing except through Jesus Christ.
Nothing is impossible for God and I mean absolutely nothing. I go around speaking and telling people about the things God can do and yet there are those who no matter what cannot give in to trust in Jesus for their healing. There are those who would say that I am following a myth and that I am wasting my time because it will never happen. Well let me tell you about what I know about miraculous healing and how the impossible becomes possible through Jesus Christ.
In my own life I have had a heart attack and God healed me, I have had cancer and again God healed me, just to mention just two. When my wife and I travel to the Philippines we preach the Good News and the healing power of Jesus Christ. We have seen God do things that we know are totally impossible for men. One story I will share of a miraculous healing of the impossible.
We were ministering in Tomas Oppus Leyte Philippines when a young woman was literally drug to the front by her friend for prayer for healing. It was very obvious that this woman had no desire to be there. I began to ask the woman some questions and she was willing to respond. One of the questions I asked her was, your friend is very concerned about you and there must be something going on in your body that triggers that concern? She began to tell me that just a few days before we came to minister she was told by her doctor that she had terminal stomach cancer and that he gave her less than a month to live. She said she had cried out to God but He did not respond and she knew that there was no such person as God and therefore she did not want prayer.
I asked the woman to at least allow me to pray for her because after all I had come five thousand miles and at least it would satisfy my calling. The woman allowed me to pray for her with a lot of reservations. I had my wife put her hand on the woman’s stomach and I placed my hand on her hand and I prayed for total and complete healing. I thanked the woman for allowing me to pray for her and she went back to her seat at the back of the church.
After about twenty or thirty minutes of praying for others, the pastor came to me and told me that I needed to come to the back of the church immediately. We rushed to the back and there was the woman setting there in what looked like a glow around her. I asked her what she was feeling. She responded by telling me that when she returned to her seat it felt like something on fire entered in through the top of her head and went all of the way down her body. Almost instantly I felt the Lord tell me that she was completely healed. I told the woman to go to her doctor and let him tell her what had happened.
About four months later as I was going in to a staff meeting at church, I got a telephone call from my pastor friend in Cebu. He told me that he was back in Tomas Oppus and the woman that we had prayed for had gone to the doctor and she was indeed completely healed and was 100% cancer free. He said it was the impossible and that God had truly healed that woman.
God is still in the healing business today because the bible tells us that He is the same Yesterday, Today, and Forever. What God did two thousand years ago He does today and in the very same way. The bible says in Matthew 19:26, for man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. The key words there are WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE. The second condition for a miracle, IMPOSSIBILITY!
So, if you are one of those people who cannot grasp ahold of God’s healing power, just relax and don’t think about it, just trust in Him and He will take it from there. God loves you with a love that far surpasses anything you will ever know or understand. He loves you so much that He gave His only Son that if you would just believe in Him and give Him a chance He will show you things that will baffle you. If you don’t know how much God loves you just take a look at how much He loved Jesus and He loves you that much.
Surrender your paranoia and your doubt and give God a chance and I will guarantee you, you will never be the same again, NEVER!
God bless you and be healed in the Name of Jesus!
